  An ad from the end of the running for the Bridge Theatre. Movies included movies with Paul Newman , Jackie Gleason, and films entitled "Scream of Fear " and " Most Dangeroue Man Alive" Before the " new" Bridge Theatre was built, the corner was occupied by two smaller theatres, the Bridge and Edmondson. An ad can be seen to the right for the Edmondson Theatre. The slogan for the Edmondson was " It it's Good, it's at the Edmondson" !

 
   Early 1970's ( maybe late 1960's ) ad for the movie " A Prize of Gold " starring Richard Widmark.
 
The Bridge Theatre was built in the 1930's, to replace the old Bridge and Edmondson Theatres, according to Exit, Dr Robert Headley's book on Baltimore theatres. The two smaller theatres had been built next to each other in that block, and were torn down for the building of the new Bridge theatre. The massive theatre building had an entrance on the corner of Edmondson Avenue and Pulaski Street, but that has been closed off and a new entrance has been made on Edmondson Avenue. The building has long since been closed as a theater, and used as a church. It appears to be in good condition, and while the neighborhood around it has seen better days, the old theater building appears it will be around for many years to come.

..............................

While the area of Edmondson Avenue and Pulaski Street has seen better days, the Bridge Theatre continues to operate as a church on the corner. The old theater building had the entrance on the corner of Edmondson and Pulaski , but the entrance has since been moved over onto Edmondson Avenue. The building has undergone a few changes in ownership in recent years, but continues to remain open as a church.
